Looking for a great Black Friday deal on mobile plans or devices? Telstra has announced a range of Black Friday offers, including discounts on several popular smartphones and hubs (plus a special SIM-only offer exclusively for new customers). We’ve rounded up all of Telstra’s limited-time deals below.
Telstra phone and device deals
$216 off the Apple iPhone XS
Pick up the 64GB iPhone XS on a 24 or 36-month Telstra device payment plan, and you’ll save a total of $216. This deal is available now through to 13 January, 2019, so it’s not Black Friday exclusive – but’s it worth keeping in mind if you’re planning to buy a new Apple device ASAP. You’ll also get a free 12-month subscription to Apple TV with all iPhone purchases.
$144 off the Google Pixel 4
Prefer Android to iOS? Telstra is cutting the 64GB and 128GB Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL by $144 on 24-month and 36-month device payment plans. This offer is available from now until 2 December, 2019.
$504 off the HTC 5G Hub
Telstra’s first-ever 5G-capable device is now available with a massive $504 discount. Buy the HTC 5G Hub on a 24-month or 36-month payment plan, and connect to any month-to-month Telstra mobile broadband plan, and you’ll receive over $500 in account credits over your repayment period. Keep in mind that if you cancel your service early, you’ll forfeit any remaining credits. This deal is available only while stocks last.
The HTC 5G Hub offers mobile coverage on Telstra’s 5G and 4G networks. Telstra 5G is currently being rolled out in major metropolitan areas – more information on the network is available in our Telstra 5G guide.
